TIMES GONE BY: A wedding day to remember
1951: Widespread interest surrounded the wedding solemnised at the Methodist Church, Gladstone, when Rev G Taylor officiated at the marriage of Regina Alice, second daughter of Mr and Mrs A Noe, of Greenmount, via Toowoomba, to Keith David, only son of Mr and Mrs AE Ferguson, Carter Street, Gladstone.
Escorted to the altar by her father, the graceful bride made a radiant picture in her gown of all-over lace over satin. Modelled on old world lines, the frock featured full-length sleeves peaked at the wrist, the full skirt pleated at the front and gathered at the back fell into a long circular train. The tulle veil, lent by Mrs J Allen, cousin of the bridegroom, was held in place by a lace Juliette cap trimmed with orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of Eucharist and arum lilies with Geraldton wax and maidenhair fern tied with white satin ribbon.
The bride's sister attended the bride, frocked in a blue water-wave taffeta made with tightly fitting bodice featuring squared neckline and short sleeves and a pink spray adorned the shoulder.
The smart cocktail hat was featured with tulle veiling which fell on her shoulders. She carried a bouquet of blue and pink sweet peas tied with blue satin ribbon. Best man was Mr E Baynton.
